Ethnocentrism in Ghanaian Politics is not Dangerous – Essamuah

Mr. Essamuah may think that the modern structure of democracy in Ghana is stable. And I can agree to a very general extent. However, even in the swing regions of Western, Central and Greater Accra, various populations of Ewes (or people loyal to them) and Asantes (or groups loyal to them) do political battle to carry those regions.

How Much Can You Afford to Love Your Family?

The health care equation has gone from, "How much do you love your family members?" to "How much can you afford to love your family members?" Pharmaceutical companies have lost their moral sense. Prices are getting to the point where it is not only unsustainable, but also immoral!

Race & Ethnic Perception May Not be Automatic

The few African psychologists who have spoken out about this new research are of the view that racism itself is a practice of group membership carried to unacceptable excesses and consequences, and that these practices are rather taught to groups, and not naturally acquired by them.

African traditional law stands to teach us all – Africans as well - a great deal. It makes more sense than how the world is treating the environment.

One Last Dance For Consumption

The Point Of Life – A Philosophy of Imhotep

Don’t wait for your peers; don’t wait for an audience; do not wait for a sign in the sky; and do not wait even for inspiration; dedicate yourself to this gift guaranteed unto us by Amun. Let The Ancestors be your motivation. Then you will stand in the hall of The Gods; And the world will know your name; for you will burn with the stars of the night.

To Tip Or To Tithe – An American Dilemma

In the US economy, $3.50 an hour is a direct ticket to paupers’ paradise. Workers on such wages cannot pay half of their monthly bills let alone feed one child! They often have to borrow, with heavy interest rates accumulating at each turn of the month.
